Hotel Description

Even by Italian standards, Positano is naturally breathtaking: its colorful houses and churches cling desperately to the mountainside, with postcard-perfect views of the sea coming seemingly a dime a dozen. Perhaps a bit more than a dime, actually; it’s possible (if unlikely) that there are still some secret places left on the Italian coasts, untouched by tourism, but even if that’s true, Positano certainly isn’t one of them.

Il San Pietro isn’t much of a secret either, and the key to its appeal is quite simple; it may just be the best hotel on the Amalfi Coast, and is a strong contender for any global list.

A small 17th-century chapel devoted to San Pietro marks the hotel entrance, and the rest of the property hangs on the cliffside below, each level descending the face like a staircase—perhaps a disquieting experience for those not comfortable with heights, but offering unparalleled views of the sea from every room and every terrace. The hotel is built just one room deep, and there are no inferior views; each room hugs the cliff at its back side and opens onto a private terrace at the front.

Given the views, the interiors are almost irrelevant. Fortunately they haven’t been neglected: rooms are spacious, with tile floors, individually designed in a spare and tasteful style. Standard and deluxe rooms differ mostly in size, and the “special” rooms offer such unique details as glass-walled bathrooms for bathing with a view.

The restaurant at the hotel’s top offers traditional Italian cuisine with stunning views of the Gulf of Salerno, as does the swimming pool, carved dramatically into the terraced cliffside. A lift descends from the hotel lobby to a private beach below, complete with a seaside cocktail bar.

All of this paradise on earth means Il San Pietro is not exactly a budget hotel—“exclusive” hardly begins to describe the situation. Positano is one of the world’s great hideaways, a celebrity haunt for decades, and Il San Pietro has seen its share of the beautiful people; one guess who room 8½ is named for.

Please note:

Il San Pietro di Positano does not allow children under 10.
